Did you know:
Construction of the north entrance steel structure of the Express Rail Link West Kowloon Station required building nine sets of irregular Mega-Columns up to 45m in height.
Unlike the conventional prefabricated modules, the roof module of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Passenger Clearance Building made by the Modular Integrated Construction method included not only the structural steel frames.
They also came with pre-installed building services, as well as architectural builders works and finishes such as aluminum cladding, skylights, smoke vents, drainage, baffle ceilings, and lighting systems.
80% of the Central-Wanchai Bypass (CWB) runs underground, which reduces the obstruction to the harbour front view. Extensive greening elements are also added to the structure and the areas surrounding the CWB, with the intention to provide additional green space to the area.
